Dinosaurs Alive! @ MOST
Dec 12 @ 11:00 am – 11:40 am
Dinosaurs Alive! @ MOST | Syracuse | New York | United States

Narrated by Michael Douglas, Dinosaurs Alive! is a global adventure of science and discovery – featuring the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous. Audiences will journey with some of the world‘s preeminent paleontologists as they uncover evidence that the descendents of dinosaurs still walk (or fly) among us today!

From the exotic, trackless expanses and sand dunes of Mongolia‘s Gobi Desert to the dramatic sandstone buttes of New Mexico, the film will follow American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) paleontologists as they explore some of the greatest dinosaur finds in history. Through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation, these newly discovered creatures, and some familiar favorites, will come alive…in a big way!

The film estimates that we’ve discovered less than two percent of all the dinosaur species that once lived. For young paleontologists, the adventure is just beginning, and this film is sure to spark imaginings of what mysteries still lie buried beneath our feet.
Runtime: 40 minutes
The Polar Express – IMAX @ MOST
Dec 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:45 pm
The Polar Express - IMAX @ MOST | Syracuse | New York | United States

Based on Chris Van Allsburg’s 1986 Caldecott Medal Winner book of the same name, The Polar Express revolves around a boy who finds it difficult to believe in Santa as he gets older. The film takes viewers on a journey through the perspective of a boy questioning his beliefs until he takes a magical train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Seeing the film in the MOST’s Bristol IMAX Omnitheater offers an immersive viewing experience, putting you into the action on a journey of self-discovery. Playing in IMAX 15/70mm film!

Pandas: Wild at Heart – IMAX @ MOST
Dec 12 @ 2:00 pm – 2:40 pm
Pandas: Wild at Heart - IMAX @ MOST | Syracuse | New York | United States
Narrated by Kristen Bell, Pandas follows a researcher at Chengdu Panda Base in China, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear program in rural New Hampshire.  What starts as a cross-culture collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for an American biologist who crosses an ocean to join her; a scientist from Inner Mongolia; and a very curious female cub named Qian Qian, born in captivity. Join Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure in the mountains of Sichuan as she takes her first steps outside her protected habitat, discovering her true animal nature even as she faces the challenges of the unknown.
Runtime: 40 minutes

Hubble – IMAX @ MOST
Dec 12 @ 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm

Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, Hubble takes moviegoers on an unprecedented voyage through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mystery of our celestial surroundings. Experience never-before-seen flights through the farthest reaches of the universe, and accompany spacewalking astronauts on some of the most difficult and important endeavors in NASA’s history.

In May 2009, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched a mission to make vital repairs and upgrades to the Hubble Space Telescope, the world’s first space-based observatory, 350 miles above the Earth. On board was an IMAX camera, operated by the shuttle astronauts. It captured stunning sequences of the five intricate spacewalks required to make those repairs, as well as close-up images of the effort to grasp the orbiting telescope with the shuttle’s mechanical arm at 17,500 mph, and one unexpected problem that threatened to sabotage the entire mission.

Runtime: 45 minutes

Dec 15 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Speaker: Amber Bartosh, RA, LEED AP BD+C, Assistant Professor, School of Architecture Syracuse University, and Co-Director, Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL)

Talk Overview: Have you seen the movie Ready Player One? Did you see how the characters co-exist in the physical environment and the virtual world? What if I told you that that future is already here? Come see how new hybrid reality technologies (which seem like video games!) are actually informing our everyday environments. Try on a Virtual Reality headset and witness how the virtual and physical are always intertwined. Energy and information flows are moving around us all the time. Plus! Learn how you can create your own 360 degree virtual environments as well.

Biography: Amber Bartosh is a LEED-accredited architect and interior designer who has designed and managed award-winning projects in the United States, China, Kuwait, and the U.A.E. She received her B.A. in Art and Architecture from Rice University and her M.Arch from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Amber is currently an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture, a Syracuse Center of Excellence Faculty Fellow, and co-director of the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL). Her work focuses on the architectural application of emergent materials through physical prototyping and advanced visualization technologies including virtual reality simulation.
